The SR1 features Andrew Demko’s signature minimalist style, with no unnecessary flourishes or embellishments, just pure functional, no-nonsense, practical design. The SR1’s heavy duty blade is made to be put to work. Crafted from 5mm thick American CPM-S35VN premium powdered steel, it’s a heavy duty work horse, designed for the harshest and most unforgiving environments. A good blade needs a good handle, so the SR1’s handle is made from premium G-10 with heat treated nested steel liners. With an integrated lanyard hole and a coarse-textured surface for a secure grip even in cold, wet conditions, it’s also expertly contoured to allow for a comfortable and safe grip, even while wearing heavy gloves. For added reliability and peace of mind, we equipped the SR1 with our world-famous Tri-Ad locking mechanism - proven time and time again to weather even the worst abuse, with unparalleled shock and impact resistance - making this knife the ideal choice for a survival rescue blade intended for our nation’s warrior elite!
